Summary
Abstract: The Brazilian receiving station for Landsat data is located in Cuiaba,
state of Mato Grosso, Midwest region: 56 degrees 5 minutes 30 seconds
West longitude, and 15 degrees 32 minutes 30 seconds South
latitude. The Cuiaba station started to operate in May 1973. MSS data
were acquired on a routine basis over Brazil and by special request
over the other countries. RBV images were acquired during the Landsat
3 years. Thematic mapper data have been recorded over Brazil since
February 1984. By October 1987, the Cuiaba station stopped recording
MSS data and began to acquire Thematic Mapper images on routine
fashion over the whole range of the antenna. MSS products are for
while available just through the reproduction of existing photographic
originals (about 150.000 B/W and color images). A new processing
system was designed and began running digital frames in October
1995. Thematic Mapper images are available and can be ordered both in
print and digital formats.
